Bike Locker FAQ

 

 

1.    What are bike lockers?

Bike lockers are secure enclosures that allow the storage of one bicycle of various sizes and forms. They are more secure than bike racks or bike cages and can shield bikes from the elements.

2.    How much do they cost?

Bike lockers can be rented on a four, eight or twelve month term with each term period costing $25.00. A $75.00 deposit is required for your key which will be reimbursed when you vacate a locker and end your rental agreement. 

3.    How secure are bike lockers?

Bike lockers are the highest standard for bike safety available. Each locker is full encased using high quality steel, and comes with a high security case-hardened boron steel Abloy lock. 

4.    Will my bike fit?

Lockers have been designed to accommodate most bikes. Most configurations/styles will easily fit into the locker. Oversized panniers, tandem bikes or bike trailers will not fit.

5.    How do I apply for a bike locker?

Any member of the University community can fill out our online locker request form. Once completed, forms are submitted to Parking Services and locker allocations are made on a first come, first served basis.

6.    When will I hear back about my locker request?

Space is limited. You will be contacted as soon as a locker becomes available at a location of your choosing.  

7.    How can I cancel my rental agreement?

If you do not want to continue your locker rental, you must indicate your desire to do so at least 2 weeks before the end of your rental agreement. Should you wish to terminate your rental agreement before the end of the rental term, no refunds will be issued. 

8.    What if I lose my key? Can it be replaced?

Any lost or stolen keys must be reported immediately to Parking Services, and the key deposit will be forfeit. A second lock/key can be provided at the cost of an additional deposit ($75.00).

9.    If the lockers are full, what are my other options for secure bike parking on campus?

There are several other options for cyclists depending on your campus:

Fort Garry – Located on the ground level of the University Parkade, the Bike Station is a covered and enclosed parking facility for 100 bikes that is secured with a card-lock system. For more information, contact: parking_services@umanitoba.ca

 

Bannatyne – Located between the Faculty of Dentistry and the Parkade, the Bannatyne Bike Cage is an enclosed area for 50 bikes that is secured with a card-lock system. For more information or to gain access, please go to the Physical Plant office at RM S01B in the Medical Services Building.

The HSC Emily Parkade Secure Bike Lockup is available to staff and students for a nominal fee. Please go to the HSC Parking Desk or contact: hscparkingofice@hsc.mb.ca

  

10.  Will there be lockers on Bannatyne campus?

 Yes, students and staff at Bannatyne have identified the need for more secure bike parking options. Due to physical limitations, a location is still being determined.  

11.  Why are there only 16 lockers? Will there be more in the future?
The University of Manitoba is continually updating and improving our active transportation infrastructure. The bike lockers are considered a pilot project and will be used to monitor and evaluate the desire and/or need for future investments in secure bike parking.
